Listening Tour









In an ongoing effort to listen and engage with WSBA members across the state, WSBA President Steve Crossland and Executive Director Paula Littlewood are hitting the road and traveling around the state. They’ll make stops in Spokane, Clarkston, Lyle, South Bend and Port Townsend, ending in Seattle with a special member luncheon.

You may recall that President Crossland asked for email input on two questions following the referendum vote. He said he’d randomly draw 10 members from those who responded and invite them to lunch for further discussion. That lunch will occur on June 14.

These “listening stops” are your opportunity to ask questions, share ideas and offer comments as WSBA seeks to ensure the bar of the future best meets your needs, the needs of the profession and the public it serves.

All members are welcome to attend any of the scheduled visits occurring June 11-13. Your input matters, and we hope you’ll join President Crossland and Executive Director Paula Littlewood at a stop near you. View all locations on a map.
